Im looking for a camera to mount on my shotgun barrel for clays and bird hunting. All I can seem to find on the net is paintball cameras and the roscoby camera that seems to be bigger than what I want. Id prefer to have a very small and light one so that it dosnt get in the way or affect the performance or weight of the gun very much.
Have any of you ever had any experiance with any type of these camers?? What types and what to expect, or any tips!! Also where to find one. Thanks!!

When I search I usually do a Google search then hit images at the top left. You can see all kinds of places that sell whatever you're looking for. After a search here is two links. THE LAST ONE LOOKS BEST TO ME. They don't have it in stock anymore. Try searching that particular item you might find someone else that carries it. Hope it helps

I think Bushnell marketed a tactical/sporting DV unit called the Sureshot.
Im not 100% aware if it's still sold. Check the main website for Bushnell or Midway-USA . Midway was selling them online but it may have been a close out.
The video cameras were able to hold up to firearm recoil & harsh use. It could be a video or still image camera.

You might look at this as an option, or something more like this. It'll be alot easier on the camera.

For a NIB(new in box) Burris ShotCam see: www.MidwayUSA.com . The retail price is $695.00.
It's Burris not Bushnell that marketed this DV camera/digital image set-up.
